Before God and these witnesses,
I make this promise - that I will
choose to love you each day of our
lives together. God has given us this
love and, beause of it, I will always
be your best friend, standing beside
you throughout the good times and the
bad. Today I marry you and give you
my heart and my love, which shall
always be yours.
These are the words that Jason and I said to each other 10 years ago today. It was a solemn vow, a promise to be faithful to each other and to the God who gave us to each other. Here we are...10 years later. A bit older, a few more kids, a few vacations, one more house than we had back then but still working on living out these words. I just thought I'd take you on a bit of an journey through our last ten years.
2002 - Young, in love and just married! (In fact, 10 years ago about an hour from now)
2003 - Our first anniversary spent in Calais, France
2004 - We purchased our very first home.
2005 - No longer two, we added Alexander.
2006 - Fun times as a family of 3.
2007 - Along comes the next one...we welcome Evan.
2008 - Our kids' first time on an airplane and other fun in Tijuana, Mexico.
2009 - Adventures with toddlers. The jerseys are symbolic of Jason's finishing university.
2010 - Still expanding...here comes Jonathan.
2011 - Just enjoying life and each other.
2012 - Everyone's growing up so fast...Easter this year.
2013...and beyond - who knows? But I sure am looking forward to it.
It has been a wonderful 10 years and here's to the next 10!! (By the way, we're definitely the old married couple since we're spending our 10th anniversary throwing a 2nd birthday party for our youngest! :) ).
Until next time...
